Thank you!

I read all of the articles and manuals in a whirlwind of an effort, and then cogitated on everything for a while. The result was that I was very interested in current sources, so I went back through all of the articles and found nothing (except the speaker and network articles). For some reason, I forgot the First Watt manuals. They do indeed answer my questions (at least as well as I understand my questions at the moment :-)

Good I was having a little trouble with your question. I was begining to think you were focused on DC only. You can certainly force AC current through a cap from a single ended stage like the Aleph. As in the ZenV4.

It's interesting that no one seems to do this. I've heard
comments like "It sucks the life out of the music".

Why this would be is a mystery.
